Strike up the band (The Cure will do) because it’s Goth Day, a day for goths and those that admire their gloomy, monochromatic ways. Hur-rah for that.

Bridget Christie – A Bic For Her/Kate Smurthwaite – News At Kate, The RVT, 22 May (pictured)
In this very special preview of her Edinburgh show, the brave and always-brill Bridget Christie has a ‘Bic’ of a go at explaining female phenomena like Tory feminism, ladies-only biros, and Brian Blessed.

Details and tickets here.
